The Nutcracker 2016

Seven year-old Blinky has been taking ballet since before she was three. This year, she had the opportunity to dance in the Nutcracker as a little angel in the Angel Scene. It was incredibly graceful dance and little Blinky danced beautifully! We could not have been more proud!

The girls had nine performances over  three days, with rehearsals all week. There were a few long nights, but not once did I hear a complaint from any of them. The Moms worked together to ensure the girls were well fed and entertained backstage along with the requisite costume repairs, make-up touch ups, hair emergencies, you name it.

On the penultimate day of performances, I presented Blinky with a box set of Nutcracker ornaments. She was overjoyed! Of course she received flowers from the DH and Stinky, but I wanted her to have a forever memento. These fit the bill perfectly!

Words cannot adequately express how proud I am of my little angel!
